Fodor's Review

A Gothic-style gem built in the early 1930s, this chapel is the centerpiece of Duke University. Modeled after England's Canterbury Cathedral, it has a 210-foot-tall bell tower. Weekly services are held here Sunday at 11 am. The chapel is a popular wedding spot, so check the website before trying to visit on Saturday. Note that the Chapel nave, which takes up much of the interior, will close in May 2015 and won't reopen until spring of 2016.
